Beat the Heat with Bittersweet Chocolate Ice Cream

July 1, 2011

Making ice cream at home has never been easier.  Ice cream makers are inexpensive, running upwards of 40 dollars and ingredients are readily available in any market.  This is my favorite recipe for chocolate ice cream, satisfying to any chocoholic.  You can mix almost anything into this base such as chocolate chips, marshmallow fluff, or chopped nuts.  If you are planning to mix anything into your ice cream, do so at the end so they don't get too broken up.  Enjoy this chocolate ice cream in a cup or a cone on an especially hot day.
